Ellie Kemper ’02 returns to TV as star of new NBC comedy

Quipfire! alum Ellie Kemper will star in “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”, a new comedy series set to premiere on NBC in the spring of 2015. Ellie plays the titular character, a young woman who escapes a cult and starts life anew in New York City. Tina Fey and Robert Carlock are the executive producers and writers of the show.

You can read more about the show on the NBC website.

Quipfire! Performing at DCM

If you’re in New York this summer, come watch us perform at the Del Close Marathon on Saturday, June 28th. We are performing at the St. Mark’s Theater at 7:15 pm. You will need to buy a wristband for the entire weekend, but there are a ton of other great improv groups performing at the festival, so it’s totally worth it!

The schedule is here.

Reunions Shows!

Not only is this Quipfire!’s last set of shows for the year, but it’s also the last set of shows for our three seniors Adam, Amy, and David. Quipfire! is saying goodbye to three incredible and unique performers, so Quipfire! decided to perform three incredible and unique long form styles: a Facebook show, an Armando, and a Musical! Each night will be a different style, so come to all three if you can!

Where: Theatre Intime
When: May 29th-31st, 11 pm
How: Tickets at Frist or at the door

Quipfire! Facebook Show

Do you post a new status every three hours? Have you never missed a Throwback Thursday? Do you validate your self-worth based on the number of likes your profile pictures receives? Then come to the Quipfire! Facebook Show!

For one night only, Quipfire! is performing a style of improv never before seen on Princeton’s campus! We will bring audience members on stage, project their Facebook profiles on a screen, and interview them about their online personas. Then we will perform scenes based on that interview.

When: 9 pm Friday, April 11th
Where: Theatre Intime
How: Tickets are $5, available at Frist or at the door

March Shows!

We just placed second in the National Championship of the College Improv Tournament and now we’re bringing our award winning improv back to Princeton! That’s right, we’re the second best collegiate improv group in the country (and the first if you don’t include graduate students)! Take a break from the rain, sleet, and snow and enjoy some long and short form improv, including an improvised musical!

Thursday – Saturday, March 6-8
11:30 pm at Frist Performance Theater
Get tickets at Frist or at the door before they run out!

Quipfire! Places 2nd at Nationals of College Improv Tournament!

We spent the weekend in Chicago competing in the finals of the CIT and we came home with a trophy! Out of 136 teams that competed in the tournament, we placed 2nd, in only our 2nd year in the competition!

Quipfire! placed 2nd out of 136 college teams.

Quipfire! placed 2nd out of 136 college teams.

(David, Anna, Jake, and Emily couldn’t come because they are multi-talented and were performing in plays on campus. But they were there in spirit!)

Two-time regional champs!

Quipfire! competed in the College Improv Tournament for the second time, and for the second time we took first in the Big Apple Regional and brought home a beautiful plaque that will hopefully finally make our parents proud of us! Catch us at nationals on March 1st! 156381_10151909038446238_1838156231_n

Winter Formals Shows!

You know what beats touching your chin to your chest every fifteen minutes alone in your dorm room, just waiting for the inevitable to come? A big ol’ improv blowout!

Come in your finest if you’re going to formals (our shows are conveniently scheduled in the lull between dinner and dancing when nothing’s going on), or come in your whatever if you’re not! We love you just the way you are.

Thursday – Saturday, December 5-7
